Upcoming Alliance Workshops on Managing Human Resources

Most small and medium-size non-profit organizations with 5-40 employees do not need and cannot justify a full-time human resources manager. However, it is essential that human resources matters are addressed professionally and pro-actively if you want to attract, retain and develop top-notch staff in your organization.

The Alliance's latest suite of professional development offerings, presented by Greg Miller, our Group Human Resources Subscription Services partner at Crowflight Consulting Services, are geared towards those supervisors and managers that are responsible for managing HR within your organization. The program is designed to help participants to:

  • Understand their HR roles & responsibilities;
  • Clarify their organization’s HR accountabilities and legal obligations;
  • Ensure due diligence in managing the HR regime;
  • Develop the appropriate HR competencies to manage employees;
  • Access and build on their own knowledge, skills and experience in handling HR;
  • Gain a level of comfort and confidence that will allow them to effectively manage HR issues.
